"Adeline" as written by and Gilbert,j G/wright,l(nicholls,horatio)....
You grabbed my hand
And held on tight
We floated down
Past prying eyes
And I’d never jumped dear
From such great heights
Were you not there, dear Adeline

You got a voice dear
That’s hard to find
I hear it call me
Each time I die
It brings me back love,
And you’re wearing white
It’s all the time now, dear Adeline

And we’ll wave goodbye to the punch drunk world
Sugarcoat so sweet, little gum drop girl
And I’m hopeless to believe in
But, if you’ll just stay a while
I’ll do anything you say
Dear Adeline

I caught you smiling
I asked you why
You said no reason
I said baby that’s just fine
Long as you’re happy
Right by my side
Your little gun shy grin, Adeline

You’ll take no husband
You’ll have no kids
But you love your whiskey
And all your friends
They’ll break your back love
But you’ll never cry
Cause you never was like them
Dear Adeline

And we’ll waive goodbye to the punch drunk world
